Oh, no! I'm so sorry! Here, let me give you a hug (( )). This is much worse than a hummingbird. :(

oh lovely pic! what flower?

Susan: I feel terrible for her. I really do. It's so hard when you love unconditionally. wah! hugs for Reya, not me.

Brian: you're sweet. It's a lily; not sure what the name of this one is. It might be "Chicago" but all my plant signs blew away long ago (you now, the ones that come with the plant that you stick in the groiund so you'll remember what is there in the Fall when you're cleaning up).

Very sweet of you California Girl. I'm sure Reya will appreciate the gesture, as the flower is stunning.

Reya Mellicker said...

It's SO beautiful! Thank you. Really, thank you SO MUCH!

Marguerite said...

Cal. Girl- It was so nice of you to honor your friend in this way. The picture is just beautiful.

This was a beautiful flower, I baked cookies that I wish I could have given to her. I cried Monday evening and I cried Tuesday Morning, I know Jake is not my dog, but I still felt the loss so much and the thought of the pain that Reya was going through was really affecting me. I have had to do the same thing more than once and it was not easy, so I understood.

I think we will all miss Jake so much, I am so use to reading about his antics or seeing pictures of him and I know it will be hard for Reya to be without her beloved Jake.

Her site was the very first one I visited after I started posting on my site, so it always has a special place in my heart. Both of them have a special place in my heart as I am sure they do for many of us.

Okay, I am starting to cry again. I can only say I feel this loss greatly.

God bless.

My word verification is "mismis", funny how it does this, how does it know that I missmiss right now.

Nancy: it's a Fall blooming lily I planted four or five yrs ago. My husband loves close ups.

Reya: You are welcome. Jake has brought everyone so much joy. His memory will continue and I like the modest change to your blog title.

Marguerite: you are sweet. thank you.

Mrsupole: awww, you are going to make me cry again. It is painful to be so attached and know how attached so many of us become with our best friends. your comment is full of meaning for Reya I am sure. I would want to know my first real "follower" who is LOL/Nancy cares that much.
